Workshop on Inculcating Counseling Skills in Teachers

30 November 2015

“Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students.”

A workshop on “Inculcating Counseling Skills in Teachers” was conducted by CBSE for the teachers of the Primary Wing (Classes III-V) on 30th November, 2015 emphasizing the role of teachers as ‘Mentors for life and not teachers for classrooms.’ The resource person was Mrs. Neera Chopra, a renowned academic analyst and consultant with CBSE.
The interactive workshop focused on the role of the teacher as an educator who offers intellectual, moral and social instruction to his/her learners by virtue of being their mentor. Many conventional approaches to handling difficult situations were discarded and newer, more sensitized child-centric approaches were accepted. Case studies and situations were deliberated upon to exhibit how, as teachers we need to be more interactive and responding, rather than reacting. A practical approach to teaching and learning was discussed and Mrs. Chopra suggested techniques for effective and enjoyable teaching-learning of various subjects in the classroom situation.
The role of the teacher in building a student’s overall personality was discussed. The informative and enriching session resounded that counseling is climate-building and not a therapy; therefore, it must be practiced by teachers as a routine in their classrooms at all times. It was indeed an extremely effective and informative session for all those who attended.
